can be a very confusing city, especially for the outsider. No doubt you will
hear numerous area names bandied back and forth which can often be daunting.
names you will be familiar with - Soho,
- but that doesn't mean you know where they are!
how does London fit together? How do the different areas relate to one
another? And where are the main sites you want to see?
worry! This page gives a brief outline of the major tourist areas and
will help you get your bearings. But don't forget there are lots of other
parts of London to explore, where you can escape from the crowds, chance
across peaceful parks and gardens, and discover a more authentic London off
the beaten track…..
London that we see today is one of the most varied and diverse cities in the
world. You just have to take a look at any street map to see that the city
wasn't planned (no straight, orderly streets here), but that it has evolved
over hundreds of years to form the jumble of streets, districts and boroughs
that shape the present day city.
London has expanded over the years, whole villages, towns and districts have
been swallowed up within its boundaries. As a result, the city retains a
very provincial feel, but that is what makes London so special and unique.
But don't let the confusion of geography intimidate you - it is best to
explore London in small chunks so that you can delight in its diversity!
Thames is the heart of London - it slowly meanders from west to east,
dividing the city into its northern and southern halves. For most tourists,
it is a small area north of the river that constitutes 'London', and indeed,
most of the more obvious tourist sites are fairly concentrated in this area.
These are the areas that you will probably recognise by name - Soho,
to name but a few.
give you a central reference point we will use the area of London
that is known as 'The
City of London', or more commonly just 'The
This is an apt starting point as it is the site
of the original London that dates back to Roman times, where the
original walled city stood. It is an area approximately one square
mile to the north of the river with
as its focal point. Also home to Wall
and the Bank of England, The
City is one of the most important financial institutions in the
To the east of The
City, you will naturally find the East
End - areas such as Whitechapel,
and the Docklands.
Although best known for being home to the Cockney,
End now has a more culturally diverse feel to it with large ethnic
communities. Most visitors to the East
End go at the weekends for its famous markets
and it is here that you will get a taste of 'real' London.
London actually contains two cities - in Britain, a city is
defined as a town or area with its own charter and, most
importantly its own cathedral. London's other one is Westminster,
which dates back to the eleventh century when King Edward the
Confessor built his cathedral.
As the name suggests, this lies to the west of The
City! It is Westminster
that is home to British politics, with the
of Parliament, Whitehall
all within its boundaries. Other tourist delights such as Buckingham
Palace and, of course, Westminster
Abbey are found here too.
to the west of The
City is the West
End. Although the name would suggest that this area covers
absolutely all of west London, it actually refers to a quite specific
area from Tottenham Court Road in the east to Park Lane in the west.
just to confuse matters, the name 'West
End' is commonly used in a broader sense to include Soho,
and even Westminster.
many tourists, the West
End (especially in its broader use) is London. Here you will find
landmarks such as Trafalgar
Square and Nelson's column, Piccadilly
Circus and Leicester
Square with their world famous West End theatres
and cinemas, and the shoppers' meccas of Oxford
St and Regents
the river to the south, you will find tourist attractions such as
the cultural haven of the South
Bank Centre, Wimbledon
with its famous tennis courts, and the beautiful area of Greenwich,
home to the Prime Meridian. Also in the south you will find
districts with very familiar names such as Battersea,
Although less obviously a tourist destination, it is definitely
worth crossing over the river to explore south London.
map of London has been divided into its postcode areas (using the
first part of the postcode). The black lines divide the map into
broad geographic areas - the letters stand for north, south, east,
west and so on - then the white lines divide each geographic area
into postcode districts which are numbered. So if an area is in the
part of the map marked W, and it is the section marked 1, the
postcode for that area is W1.
postcode areas have then been listed in two sections:
first section is a list of the better known and touristy areas of
London. These are listed alphabetically with the postcode after. Then
in the following section all the areas of London are listed according
to their postcode area.
go to the postcode listings that follow the map and just click on
the postcode area or area name that you want to find out about.
So that you know where in London the main sites are situated,
take a look at the map - the tourist areas and well known areas
of London are shaded in a dark green, whilst the lesser known and
less touristy areas appear as a paler shade of green.
